How to Make Flan
Peruvian Arroz con Pollo
Alfajores (Dulce de Leche Sandwich Crème Cookies)
alfajores (dulce de leche sandwich crème cookies)
pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
cup pecan halves, toasted, finely chopped
cup butter or margarine, softened
can (13.4 oz) dulce de leche (caramelized sweetened condensed milk)
tablespoons powdered sugar
Heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In large bowl, stir cookie mix, 1/2 cup of the coconut, the pecans, butter and egg until stiff dough forms.
On floured surface, roll half of dough until 1/4 inch thick. Cut with 2-inch round or fluted cookie cutter. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Repeat with remaining half of dough.
Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until set. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely.
To make each sandwich cookie, spread about 2 teaspoons dulce de leche on bottom of each cookie. Press 2 cookies together so some of filling seeps out around edges. Roll edges in remaining 1/2 cup coconut. Place cookies on cooling rack.
Sprinkle tops of sandwich cookies with powdered sugar. Store between sheets of waxed paper in tightly covered container.
